UPCOMING EVENTS in LOS ANGELES:

---------------------------------------------------------

5/8 at 7PM-10PM - YouTube/Tubefilter Panel Discussion

Sh*t People Say: Formula For Success
At the end of last year, Toronto-based filmmakers Graydon Shepard and Kyle Humphrey, along with Juliette Lewis, debuted the first installment of the original web series Sh*t Girls Say, featuring Sheppard in drag reciting the terribly ordinary things girls say in a perfect Kids-in-the-Hall-in-women’s-clothes impression.

What followed was a phenomenon.

Nearly 100 Sh*t Girls Say spin-offs, amassing over a quarter of a billion views, have used the formula to stereotype other groups, from large populations, like Sh*t New Yorkers Say to the ultra-specific, like Sh*t Southern Gay Guys Say—spawning “best of” blog posts and definitive collections.

Join Tubefilter and YouTube at Google Los Angeles as we sit down with the most popular and successful Sh*t People Say creators to find out how they used the Sh*t People Say formula to make a video sensation.

5/15 at 7PM - Making Webisodes 101 Workshop
When: Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Where: Los Angeles
Who: YouTube Partners, limited to 20
Why: We want to help you improve your webisodes to make your YouTube channels more successful

How many episodes are needed to be considered a webisode? How often should one release a websode? What’s a good running time? How do I get it to go viral? What kind of camera should I use? This workshop will explore these topics and others to help you create better webisodes. Examples of successful webisodes are shown as well as a review of audience metrics, the importance of tagging and embedding, and “impressing through compressing.”

If you are interested in this workshop and will be available to attend in person in Los Angeles, please sign up below.
